In the dimly lit room, over a dozen figures writhed in agony on the ground, moaning and howling in pain as they clutched their broken arms.
All that was in Sixto’s eyes was deep regret. Joe had thought the young man that Tritus had ordered to get rid of was just a nobody, and he never expected the youngster to be so capable. With just his strength, the young man had taken down more than 10 of their men with ease.
“Hello. I have a few questions for you, and I hope you can answer them truthfully,” the young man said as he crouched in front of Sixto with a smile, but Sixto could feel no friendliness in his tone.
After Sixto nodded in fear, the man was satisfied and began his interrogation.
“Who sent you? What were you sent here to do? Is Miss Roxanne Bane in your hands? I advise you to be honest with me considering you only have one hand left,” the young man finished with a smirk, his eyes flickering to Sixto’s only intact hand, which made the latter shudder.
“It was Tritus Lullaby…” Sixto spilled the beans afterthinking through the consequences.
Once he was finished, George stood up and scoffed, “Psh, just another childish game of a jealous kid fighting for attention!”
Joe clapped his hands and walked toward Star Pavilion.
Sixto couldn’t help but breathe a sigh of relief as he looked at George’s leaving figure.
George looked like a decent person, but his methods were extremely ruthless. Besides, he had also identified George’s technique. It was Joint Technique, which was also known as Killing Technique.
At the moment, all of them had only suffered broken limbs, so their lives were not in immediate danger. The problem wasn’t too serious.
As George walked toward Star Pavilion, there was a sudden loud bang, followed by a series of colorful fireworks lighting up the entire night sky. The magnificent scene naturally drew a crowd of onlookers.
“Wow, it’s so beautiful!’
“Are rich kids showing off their wealth again in Star Pavilion?”
“Money really can buy anything. These fireworks are worth at least a month’s salary for me!”
As the people chattered, the booming fireworks seemed to answer them. “10 thousand, 20 thousand, 30 thousand…”
Amid the fireworks, the sound of money being counted could be heard.
At the moment when the fireworks exploded in the night sky, Tritus had already calmed down and slowly approached Roxanne with a gentle smile on his face.
“Roxy, I know you don’t really like me. I know I haven’t done things right, but I really like you…”
Joe went down on his knees with a bunch of red roses held high. “If there’s anything you’re not satisfied with, just tell me. I can change. But please, give me a chance to be your boyfriend, okay?”
As his words fell, the lights around them changed once again. Accompanied by the pure white ambient light and the wonderful sound of a violin that began to play, large flower petals fell from the ceiling like rain over their heads. Then, they softly landed on Roxanne’s shoulders.
Even Eleanor, who had rushed to the scene, couldn’t help but cover her face with her hands. She was moved to tears and the tears flowed freely from her eyes.
With everything that had happened, the restaurant staff couldn’t help but cheer and clap their hands.
“Say yes, say yes!”
As Roxanne’s sister, Eleanor gave her a push from behind. “Come on, Roxy, what are you hesitating for? A guy who’s putting in so much effort like Mr. Tritus can’t be found anywhere else in the world. Say yes to him already!”
The grand romantic gesture was deeply moving, especially for Roxanne. Such a romantic tactic was like a lethal poison for her heart. In no time, her heart which was once calm started to stir.
She stood there in the midst of the excitement, feeling hesitant about what to do next.
